in the left box and click the ">>" button to move it to the box on the right. Contaminants in the
box on the right will be used for PRG calculation. Highlight multiple contaminants at once by using the
"Shift" key. Remove a contaminant from the right box by highlighting it and clicking the "<<" button.
You may choose all contaminants by checking the "ALL" box. The calculator run time will correspond with the
